Interesting... so the headlights aren't round like what people claimed they saw at the dealer event.

Re: BRONCO ...thread continued

After the cooling fan issues 580 miles in, the Bronco R turned back and took the highway (shortcut) back. Too bad it didn't complete the 802 miles. Ford said they'll be back next year.

Prior to the cooling fan issues, the skid plate got damaged and one of the lower suspension arms broke.

And look at the lighting signature in that leaked photo from months ago - the outside edge of this insert could easily be the round light, with the horizontal part bisecting an additional part of the headlight (which is why we see a non circular/longer cutout for the headlight) - presumably above/below that bisecting element would be the turn signal:



And look at the baby Bronco's hood /front end and how it has a similar shape....







Then compare to Bronco R, which is nearly completely straight across:







I know that's not a production Bronco/spy shot, but I'd imagine the front end will share that overall shape.

True true... it probably is the baby Bronco's grille.

Looking at the photos again, the shape does look very similar, same goes for the headlight cluster which are actually bigger than they appear (since there seems to be dark/smoked lenses above and below the horizontal LEDs)

Re: BRONCO ...thread continued

How long do you think the wheelbase of this 2-door Bronco mule is?
My guess... definitely less than the rumored 100 inches.

PS: For those curious, the 3-door Explorer Sport from the 90s had a 101.7 inch wheelbase
